Tbh, I’ve been email bombing Erin Ludden for months and asking her every week on her Facebook page 😂
That’s why her email says “you’ve been asking”. She made them instead of getting me arrested for harasssement.

These bad boys were exceptionally difficult to find. I had ‘wanted’ ads all over the world for these. Somebody on here is going to say they’ve got half a dozen pairs in their cave now! Anyway, really stoked that these have landed today from Canada and bonus - no import tax to pay. Final part to find is the Redline bubble font 41 tooth chainring and I’m talking to a guy in California that has one. SBD has the frameset so as soon as it’s back, I’ll start assembly.

Well. Gutted to hear back from America today that the bmxmuseum guy does not want to trade and is sending my bubble font 44 back to me. After about 6 weeks of negotiating. Frustrating game this.

Nah, I see his point - he only collects/sells original condition parts. The 44 I sent him has def had a light polish in its time. He doesn’t want it.

Good news - I’ve got a response from the American fella and he’s agreed to sell me his 41 and send mine back too. The main problem was that he wouldn’t accept a PayPal payment, but has agreed to on this occasion to help me finish the bike. Happy as. Spoke to Dan last night and the frame is powdered, it looks beautiful. Props to SBD, the welds still look stunning and the finish looks the mutt’s nuts. Just got to wait for it to get back and then wait for the chainring and then it’s on the bench  :slayer:

Next project will be the flo panel and some questions that have been baking my noodle this week.

So, question time. At the time of the article in the magazine (84), RL was running Panaracer tyres and his build specs list the tyres as ‘National Tyres’. If you have access to a copy of Freestyle BMX v1 issue 2 - take a look. I’ll put up some pics but digital quality they are not. Now, he was touring with Mike and Mike’s bike spec lists his tyres as Comp Stadium. In the magazine pics it seems pretty clear that they are both using the same tyres and that RL is also using Comp Stadium tyres. Have at it.

National/ panaracer are /were the same company......probably just described differently in the one mag? The tyres you have look right to me... :-\

the panaracer tyres logos have white inserts as well as yellow.....there's no white in the image, so I'd defo back the stadiums...
